 B&Bthere are a few races, have done a few cyclosportives this year too, Cheshire cat 100miler, Dave Loyd mega, which was hard...Welsh hills etc.

 End of Jan there's a good half mara in Helsby( four villages) that am doing to give me an idea of how my trainings progressing.

 Sefton park run sounds interesting, my club have had a cross country race there sometimes.

OGL - Do I take it all that treadmill running is due to the bad weather? Please say it is...

B&B - Over thirty, you mean, surely...

I also get nervous before a big run; in fact, I'm a bit ratty all day Saturday if I've got a biggie on the Sunday early on in the campaign. After 2 or 3, though, I find myself looking forward to them.

Eh? What, do we have to do it as a three-legged race this time? If XPS promises to bring along some of his legendary flapjack, I'm game.

B&B Very impressive progressive 18 miler.

I also get nervous/stressed prior to a long run. If fact I am stressing about my run tomorrow, not sure 20 and progressive or very slow 22 for time on feet. Been thinking about it for the last 2 days. Need to make a decision tonight.

16/12/2010 at 16:01

Sorry Ant, typo And yeah, go on, three-legged. There is a record y'know. I'd love to see XPS's face when he sets off, only to find he has an 'attachment'!

Glad it's not just me then on the nervousness. Scooby, if they're both of equal benefit to you, why not quit worrying and decide, based on how you feel, when you set off?

efc-col - I'd like to do more cycling next summer so will look out for those, thanks.  Unfortunately Helsby's full. Someone (AfE?) offered a place that he couldn't use but I didn't get in quick enough.

16/12/2010 at 16:03

B&B - if I'd kept them up straight through from Brussels, I was hoping for at least ten 20 milers. To my mind you can't do too many, and it would let me take down-weeks as well. But you're right, if I'm at 16 this weekend, assuming the glute feels okay, I should still be able to slot 7 or even 8 in doing a 20 one week, 15-17 the next. No need to panic!

Ant - I think XPS snuck that one in (x-post above!)- we've also lost that nice formatting from earlier, shall I pop that back in?

5ft 10 and a bit over 12stone at this end, not exactly marathon build either.
16/12/2010 at 16:32
You'd be 11 stone if you didn't have those huge biceps, TR! How'd the swimming lessons go? Are you noticably quicker?
16/12/2010 at 17:24
Is there still no word on the winners of the SSix?  Blooming heck, RW wouldn't get very far on the Apprentice.

noticeably ? no defo not. But she gave me some pointers to work on, its an ongoing process, I even do some drills now. I'm doing 20 x 100 in av 1:38 now (off 2 mins), and can hold av 1:42 ish with 10 sec rest. On a good day I should be able to swim 1500 in 25 mins soon (1:40 per 100), which is where I always wanted to be when I was at 30 mins a yr or 2 back................the next thing then is to crack the OW swimming....and the cycling..........running is easy to improve, you just do it a bit more often.

Band B - the test 20 last campaign was 10 @7.33,10 @6.33. So MP worked out 6.50 or so. Either the test isn't really exactly representative of doing a full race eyeballs out or the terrain at LN made enough difference to account for those 17 or so seconds per mile.

Is today the big day for the SSx then ???

16/12/2010 at 19:00

Belated good luck to KR and Jane.

B&B - Cracking mid week long run, and you were commenting on my pace.

Rest day for me today, was sorely tempted to go out for a few miles but resisted.

16/12/2010 at 20:42

TR - Nearly 20% improvement overall's not to be sniffed at. I find swimming very dull but should probably get back into the pool at some point. Over 25 minutes you'd be about 500metres ahead of me. Re cycling: our thread ex-elite, Keir says cycling's just steady TiTS but it's hard to reach your potential in triathlon if you can't dedicate all your time to it.

Good restraint shown there, Barry

FW - So 6:33 was the plan, had the mara been flat? I'd like to think the hills added 17 secs per mile but I have it in the back of my mind that those early downhills made up for it in my case. Definitely undulating though, which doesn't make for an easy run.

Does the lack of word from Jane and KR mean they've been informed but aren't allowed out to play?

16/12/2010 at 20:45

Snowing again here in South Kent. Got almost an inch in the last hour. Luckily an easier few days planned whilst I undertake round 1 of the Xmas binge.

I would like to say that after my last message revealing some personal details that I have been swamped with PMs. However thank you my fellow Chuckle Bro for ensuring that I at least received 1 message!

B+B - swimming is boring, but to do it right takes lots of concentration for me at the mo. The dream* is to get to my bike whilst more than half of the bikes are still in Transition. My cycling is defo getting better, my main limiter is still muscular endurance, meaning I still cant pedal hard enough to damage myself aerobically, which on the plus side means I always motor the run leg.

* I also told my kids that I would AG podium one day in one of the NF 1/2 IMs. Reckon it could happen when I get to V45 (in 2012).

16/12/2010 at 21:06

still no news yet on the SS - either way?

Will have to wait till tomorrow now.

16/12/2010 at 21:28
Hi All

8 miles today at 8.10 (slow i know ... had to keep stopping to throw sticks for my dog)

No news yet (i thought we would have been told by now actually. KR you're not keeping the good news quiet are you? ) Either way i will be happy so good luck KR. I'm pleased i entered as i got some nice new kit sent to me this am and also v pleased to have found this thread as i now feel i have the tools to chip away at my time so happy days

snow now in central london although it wont lie ...
16/12/2010 at 21:38

8 miles for me this evening. Discovered a new route that I'm christening 'The hill run of death up to Guildford Cathedral'. Club leader chap dragged all our backsides up there.

1st mile flat, 4 miles up hill with short spells of flat then three miles back down hill. Av. 7:32 so good solid run, feeling very tired now.

Looking forward to first xmas binge tomorrow and just chilling out! Trying to snow here but nothing really yet.

16/12/2010 at 21:57

Jane - The SSX is a bit of a curse really. I am not gutted that I didn't get past the initial stage as there is a lot of pressure on you to perform. Certainly it seems the faster you are, the more people have views and opinions about what you should be doing. It is a great opportunity and one that most of us would gladly jump at, but there are certainly down sides which I don't think become apparent to us outsiders.
